InstallShield or whatever is just not being any good... Basically when i try and install Call of Duty 2 for example there is no progress... it's just staying?, am i missing system32 files or something because i was hit by virut but i did recover pretty well, because i replaced all deleted files with clean ones.. (virus scan also comes up clean)

Why isn't this installing?

XP - SP3

I can install some others but anything that is InstallShield related i don't think... But i could be wrong.

EDIT:
Driver Detective installed (It does use InstallShield)

However i did not see the progress bar on this either.

Then...the program that you are trying to install...just may be impaired/corrupted, IMO.

I have to disagree mainly because this did NOT happen before virut detection. Im always open to remote support, via TeamViewer etc.

Well...if your point is that you have a malware problem...this is the XP forum and it's not the place for attempting to deal with malware situations.

If you are saying that your malware problems are over but your system seems to have been adversely impacted by such...then I submit that, at the least, a repair install of XP is what I might suggest.

I don't think you've supplied any info that would lead in another direction.

Have you taken a look in Event Viewer for errors that might verify/discredit your line of thought?

Isn't virut the malware item where a clean install is the general recommendation? I see that it is.

I have no idea how my Game was installed, it seems to ''magically'' be hear. I am now trying to install the patch for the game (which includes bug fixes) And the patch is also 'Blank' just like that image above.

I knew it wasn't just my game! But it's too hard to find out _--_
